Fans of the iconic film “Aliens” will have just one more Reebok shoe to pick up.
The brand revealed its final Alien Day sneaker today, the Reebok Alien U.S.C.M. Bug Stomper, that was inspired by a character in the 1986 movie, United States Colonial Marines PFC William Hudson.
The unisex sneaker, which features an upper made with protective ballistic textile material, is executed in a military camouflage, tan and gray color palette with hits of yellow and black throughout.
It also features several Easter eggs that diehard “Aliens” fans are sure to notice and graphics inspired by the movie. They include “Eyes on Your Back” on the right heel (a nod to the back right shoulder of Hudson’s body armor), the “Death or Glory” skull and Weyland Yutani Corp logo with soldier number on the left and right insoles, respectively, a transparent hangtag that resembles the U.S.C.M. dog tags in the film and several more. It will come in premium “stealth” packaging inspired by the dropships in the film.
“We took the same deep dive approach as past releases, re-watching the film countless times and taking a trip to L.A. to examine some historic props from the movie itself to make sure we got it exactly right,” Reebok senior design manager of pop culture and streetwear collaborations Chris Hill said in a statement. “Every single detail on the sneaker has been designed with authenticity in mind, down to the numerous one-to-one graphic reproductions, which definitely makes this a grail item for true Alien fans.”
The Reebok Alien U.S.C.M. Bug Stomper arrives via Reebok.com on April 26 and will retail for $220.
